Many adults suffer from hypertension, also known as high blood pressure. The problem is, hypertension is mostly symptom-free. That’s why it’s called the “silent killer” – many don’t even know they have it.
Similarly, more than 80% of patients with phase one subluxations don’t know they have them because there may be no pain or change in their range of motion. Just like hypertension, their spinal problems are silent, but no less real. And just like hypertension, leaving subluxations untreated can lead to serious health risks.
Untreated, subluxations can change the normal curvature of your spine and neck. Over time, stiffness and aches can develop; calcium buildups can lead to arthritis, and your range of motion begins to decline.
Detecting and treating hypertension early can save your life. Detecting spinal subluxations, and starting and maintaining regular Chiropractic treatment can improve your overall level of health and keep it at its optimal level. Let’s stalk down and stop those silent killers before they stop us!
